Please Pray


Prayer Request
Those of you who have been to this blog much will know I have never yet asked for a specific prayer request other than for the souls in Purgatory in general.
Today my mother-in-law passed into eternity. I humbly request your prayers on her behalf for the repose of her soul. Her name is Mary Iris. My husband and I are in Montreal for the funeral and spending time with family at this time of great suffering. I will not post again until our return home.
Mary, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for her. Do not allow her to tarry long in her purification, but escort your humble servant quickly into paradise.
Thank you kind visitors.

So sorry to hear the news. Be assured of our prayers. Especially at our Assumption mass at the cathedral tonight.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord.
And may perpetual light shine upon her.
May the souls of the faithfully departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.
Amen.

Mary said...

I just said a prayer for you.

May Our Lady's mantle drape over Mary Iris and may she be clasped closely to Our Lady's immaculate heart...to be taken forthrightly to her Son, our Lord. God rest her soul.

PAX,
susie

Thank you all for your prayers. May God bless you all abundantly for your charity. My husband and I thank the Lord we made it to her bedside in time to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet, the Rosary and place a brown scapular upon her. We also covered the room with holy water and exorcism salt and held vigil prayer along with his family members. She had already gotten the last sacraments. Today they will have her first of two days of exposition, Funeral mass Saturday, will be flying home Monday.

If you can remember, if you could but utter her name, or think of her in general at the raising of the chalice, at the ringing of the sanctus bell. Thank you and may Mary`s prayers go with you always.

Sorry I haven't visited "Our Lady's Tears" recently.

"My husband and I thank the Lord we made it to her bedside in time to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet, the Rosary and place a brown scapular upon her. We also covered the room with holy water and exorcism salt and held vigil prayer along with his family members."

Wow, what children you were! Mary Iris surely was sped along on the freeway to Heaven with those preparations.

I assume you are back now.

How is Mankato doing after all the rain?
